slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2007
bottled(clear?). Good looking stout w/ tempting roast, alcohol nose. At first taste was overly bitter, almost metallic at times. This smooths out though to a nicely roasted stout; the bitterness adds a lot to the finish. Honestly, the alcohol is perfectly inline at all times; & @ first I chuckled at the 7% imp stout. VERY NICELY DONE, BUT COULD DO WITHOUT THAT TYPICAL STALE SAM SMITH TASTE. Will def. drink again...

DonGregorio (61) - POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle. Black beer with small beige head. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate and some dark fruits. Taste of plums, chocolate, caramel, medium sweet and light roasty bitter. Medium- body, soft carbonation, texture is between thin and oily. Too thin and light for an imperial stout. OK, but not very interesting.

Charakter bardzo śliwkowy, nieco wędzony - choć nigdzie nie doczytałem by to piwo było wędzone;), do tego kakao i czekolada, jak na risa dość lekki i wodnisty, ale smaczny, pijalny i przyjemny. Bardziej stout niż imperial stout, solidne piwo.

jjsint (2484) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Dark indigo/black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Opaque. Caramel, salt liquorice, seawater and a generous amount of tar in the aroma. Sweet taste with a decent balancing sourness. Theres a salty/umami note in the long finish with liquorice and tobacco in the aftertaste. Body is oily and fairly think. Really nice beer, would have scored even higher if it didnt smell so weird.
